Brave bug in my tank

so~ today, i finally got off my lazy behind, and re-cleaned my brother's late CT's 2 gallon kK(it's been sitting, clean, in my room for over a week), and put Ichi in it(he misses his space, and his friend Theo), and put Heavy in Ichi's tank(Caroline's 1.5). well, i went to grab Heavy's bowl, when i saw something dart around.

a red "Wood Roach" was in her bowl! eeww! nasty! i swatted at it and blew on it, till it crawled out, but OMG! it was gross. x: i hate roaches.

but, it amazes me. i've heard stories of people's bettas attacking bugs, but Heavy didn't give it a glance until it crawled around in her line of sight.

i just thought i'd share my bug experience. xD it was gross for me, exciting for Heavy.


btw, i don't know the name of the roach. we call them "Red Wood Roaches" because they're often found around rotting wood. they could be called something else, for all i know. xD
